Chameleons are fascinating in how they adapt their appearance to match their environment. In Blue Chameleon by Emily Gravett (Simon and Schuster, 2011), this is taken a step further as Blue Chameleon, who is lonely, tries to adapt himself to match the new friends he meets: yellow banana, pink cockatoo, stripy sock, spotty ball, and even a white page (my favorite, as it’s the most clever).

The illustrations are done in colored pencil, and each page simply labels what Blue Chameleon is trying to be. In the end, of course, Blue Chameleon finds a friend just right for him. Blue Chameleon is a simple but fun book for kids to enjoy. (Nominated by Nancy Talan)
